Cora Hatshepsut Gilroy-Ware is a scholar and artist. Broadly speaking her work centres on classicizing European art with a focus on obscure British and Italian sculpture and painting. Awarded in 2013 her PhD. looked at the evolution of ideal corporeality during the period 1798-1840, charting the negotiation between monumental and erotic approaches to the human form. Having focused on the late 18th and early 19th centuries she is moving towards a transhistorical method, exploring the continuity between objects and images across time. She has collaborated with Tate Britain, the Courtauld Institute and the Royal College of Art and held visiting scholarships at the Yale Center for British Art, the Huntington Library and the Center for Postcolonial and Gender Studies at Università L’Orientale in Naples. Born in London she currently resides in Los Angeles, where she holds a Materialities, Texts and Images fellowship at the Huntington Library and California Institute of Technology.

Her own visual works cultivate art history as art practice. Continually making throughout and alongside her studies, she is currently engaged in a series of mixed-media pieces that illuminate her research, re-interpret and open up otherwise remote pasts. (cora.gilroyware.com)
